Ive been to SJDS several times and though a bit pricey, this place delivers on most counts. There are more expensive and cheaper places but this seem like a good mid ground but maybe a bit high. The location is great ...back from the non stop roaming surfers, taxis, and street scene but right there if you want it. If you're staying for a few days maybe you can strike a small discount?
The front desk was helpful and the rooms were clean.. nice bathroom and good size queen+ bed... nothing much in furnishing but all was very OK.
Try for an upper level room instead of ground floor, and and end unit will give you some added view and ventilation. The AC worked but really isnt needed with a the nice floor fan. The grounds are lovely and the bright clean facades are cheery.
Front desk worked well, and while not exactly warm and friendly, efficient and more or less helpfull, when not watching the blaring TV novelas. A small waiting reception area is a good stop to drop and inquire as well, at their corner location. They'll show you rooms of course, and the cleaning staff was always busy looking.
(The breakfast was quite ordinary here- bland eggs, toast etc....I suggest a great hole in the wall near by- Comedor de Angelita! set back from the street-ask around...the real deal and its got it all! outdoor dining under a patio roof, atmosphere, and nice people)
